Churro Toasted Sweet Fruit Tacos

I am so excited to share these cinnamon sugary sweet fruit tacos with you today!  I’ve partnered with Old El Paso to bring you some delicious Mexican-style recipes this year.

These dessert tacos are great for summer and light dessert or even brunch.  The cinnamon toasted taco shells are filled with a honeyed greek yogurt topped with slightly sweetened fruit.

Use your favorite fruit to individualize your guests tacos.  Any sliced and diced fruit works great!
